This medicine works pretty good but it's not fun at all to take. im on my 5th day of taking it and i can hardly keep it down. I feel super nauseous, i feel like i have no energy, my mouth tastes really really bad, and i have the worst anxiety, certainly would not recommend.

After all these bad stories about this medicine, ive actually had a pretty positive experience. Ive regular had cysts for years after my transition. A single pill relieves the pain and pressure, i always have a box with me when i go on vacation.

Ive been using this now for three months at 2x50mg per day. I was prescribed this because for the first time in my life my restlessness has become a problem. pros: no bad flashbacks, no trouble falling asleep, dont stress about things. Cons: dry skin/face, don't really feel like i am alive, weird long dreams but they can be fun sometimes aswell.
